Inspirational Quotes for the WEEKEND – New Year

By Charles Leyman Kachitsa

To many wishing others the best wishes for the New Year 2021, the word ‘Abundance’ was amongst the popular ones used. My own signature festive message sent out to all carried this word with the belief that those receiving will have the faith for materialisation of which ever that they seek in abundance for the New Year 2021.

Abundance in what? Abundance would be different one from another individual person depending on what they feel is an area of their need to be filled to flooding proportions. To some it may mean abundance on for instance finances (money), others it could be abundance of trips one wants to undertake locally, internationally or globally. Yet in some might be abundance in knowledge or as in such basic things as food which could be what they were praying for to materialise in the New Year. It is important to know that to give others you need first to have, you need to be fully filled with Love and Happiness in order to give such to others. You can not give what you do not have, it’s impossible.

For me, the ‘abundance’ I wished to those I sent my message of goodwill on 2021 to and those I am sending to now; was and is meant for the abundance in Love and Happiness since this then is the foundation of everything. Any other abundance has no meaning if there is No Love and No Happiness. So first seek these two. I wish you full Love and Happiness in all its abundance for the New Year 2021.

The quotes this week are extracted from the book which makes sense as a reading during this period in keeping with the tradition of drawing goals for a New Year. I am sure that the selected quotes below from the book will inspire and enhance the richness of your goals for the New Year 2021, read and enjoy:

RICH DAD POOR DAD by Robert Kiyosaki

“That’s how they teach you in school,’ he said, smiling. ‘But that is not how life teaches you, and I would say that life is the best teacher of all. Most of the time, life does not talk to you. It just sort of pushes you around. Each push is life saying, ‘Wake up. There is something I want you to learn.’ ———‘If you learn life lessons, you will do well. If not, life will just continue to push you around. People do two things. Some just let life push them around. Others get angry and push back. But they push back against their boss, or their jobs, or their husband or wife. They do not know it’s life that’s pushing.”

“Learn to use your emotions to think, not think with your emotions. When you boys mastered your emotions by agreeing to work for free, I knew there was hope. When you again resisted your emotions when I tempted you with more money, you were again learning to think in spite of being emotionally charged. That’s the first step.”

“Mike and I learned more sitting in on his meetings that we did in all our years of school, college included. Mike’s dad was not book-smart, but he was financially educated and successful as a result. He told us over and over again, ‘An intelligent person hires people more intelligent than he is.’ So Mike and I had the benefit of spending hours listening to and learning from intelligent people. ——– But because of this, Mike and I couldn’t go along with the standard dogma our teachers preached, and caused problems. Whenever the teacher said, ‘If you don’t get good grades, you won’t do well in the real world,’ Mike and I just raised our eyebrows. When we were told to follow set procedures and not deviate from the rules, we could see how school discouraged creativity. We started to understand why our rich dad told us that schools were designed to produce good employees, instead of employers.”

“Rule No. 1, Robert says, is that you must know the difference between an asset and a liability, and only buy assets. That’s all you need to know. But despite it being so simple. It’s something that many people don’t understand.”

“What is missing for many people is a financial education. It’s why they might end up successful in their professions but still struggling with money. They may have learned how to make money, but not how to manage it. People can be very intelligent and still be illiterate when it comes to finances. They learned how to work hard for money, but not how to make their money work hard for them.”

“So how do you know when you are wealthy? Robert uses a definition by R. Buckminister Fuller, ‘Wealth is a person’s ability to survive so many number of days forward  – or if I stopped working today, how long I could survive?”
